MY EIGHT DAYS OF CHRISTMAS FISHING TRIPS/ MALDIVES
Just got done shoveling show and am tired of it as cold winter has arrived here in Whiting. Soon, I will be sitting on the white sand beaches of the Island of Maldives waiting for Maakeyolhu fishing Charters to pick me up and motor out to the various reefs in search of monster giant trevally and other saltwater species. Maldives sits out in the Indian Ocean down from India and across from Africa. It is composed of 26 coral atolls which are made up of hundreds of Islands. The weather is extremely hot and the winds are very low making for calm seas. Moosa Kaleem is the owner of the charters and will greet you in the capital of Male.
The airport is mostly an island so all transportation is done by boat. We motor about 45 minutes to our very comfortable suites. I always thought the topwater strike by the amazon peacock bass would be difficult to top, but when these giant GTs hit you topwater popper, hold on tight. Numerous fish will be lost as you cannot stop these brutes from getting into the surf and cutting your line. So, for the time being I will pull out my sun screen and dream about heading back to Maldives.
